The Make-A-Wish Foundation is Chi Omega Fraternity's National Philanthropy. Since the start of our alliance, Chi Omegas have made a difference in many children's lives through volunteering time, talents, and dollars. The Make-A-Wish Foundation has honored Chi Omega for the incredible volunteer efforts of our members.
The University of Louisville Chi Omega chapter held the first Chi Omega Chili Cook Off in 2003 to benefit The Make-A-Wish Foundation and continues the tradition with the 13th Annual Chili Cook Off on October 18, 2015.
Each year, the chapter hosts this on-campus event to include students, parents, alumnae and faculty. In addition to delicious chilli by over 30 cookers, a silent auction for 12 huge baskets full of themed donations, children's area with face painting and bouncer and Pie-a-Chi-O contribute to raising over $20,000 each year. In 2014, we raised $24,000 and have set a goal of $35,000 for 2015.
